Storm beats Iguanas

DHL Storm beat John Doak Architecture Iguanas 35 to 25 points in the first round of the Alex Alexander Memorial League Trophy on Saturday at the South Sound rugby pitch.

It was a very tense and exciting match, and while Vanassio Tokotokovanua and Keswick Wright found no joy against a dogged performance by the Iguana backline, it was the Iguana forwards who faltered at the starting blocks, allowing a cascade of points for the Storm.

Claudio Sarfati found his way to the Iguana try line twice, closely followed by James Buckley as the Storm looked to run away with the game. But the Iguanas, not ready to lie down, put on a comeback chase. But it wasn’t enough,  and the Storm survived a nervy second half to win the opening game over the Iguanas by 10 points.

In the second match of the opening round Krys Global Buccaneers beat the Queensgate Pigs Trotters, 33 to 12.

Krys Global Buccaneers faced a Queensgate Pigs Trotters side looking to build on the previous week’s strong opening performance against the DHL Storm, but again the inability to finish long phases of forward play let down the “men in red,” leading to the Buccaneers’ 21 point victory.

Cayman rugby fans should have much to look forward to when the Buccaneers take on the Cayman Storm in the second round of the Alex Alexander Memorial League Trophy which will take place this weekend.
